I can't recommend this video report from financial analyst and investment advisor Grant Williams too highly. In forty minutes, he analyzes risk in today's economy and financial system, from the perspective of the investor. Most of us aren't investors, of course: but we'll be affected just as badly (if not more so) by any economic crash.
Mr. Williams covers fractional reserve banking, quantitative easing, inflation, interest rates, the supply of gold (and how it's been undermined by leasing), and a host of other factors. Finally, he brings everything together, and shows how the present Cyprus crisis might - might - be the start of the Great Unraveling, when all these elements implode together.
I regard this as absolutely essential viewing for anyone who's interested in the current state of the world economy and its financial systems. If you've followed my articles on the subject, and the references I've made to others' articles, this will bring many of those threads together. Frankly, if you want to be fully informed of what's going on right now, I don't think you can afford not to watch this. It's that important.
See what I mean? For further reading, see:
